Wednesday, May 1st, 2019 : SHREE DURGA
SHREE DURGA, whose persona resonates even in today’s context, where there is daily exposure to the atrocities on women. When the Gods give boons they themselves become victims of these boons and it is then that they invoke SHREE SHAKTI; FEMININE POWER, to vanquish demons in society, demonstrating that female power conquers over the several mindless demons of society. Production & Direction:  Mrs. Shobha Deepak Singh

Thursday, May 2nd, 2019 : ABHIMANYU
ABHIMANYU, whose story of youthful enthusiasm and selfless valour, torn asunder by vested interests and vicious hostilities, is the root of an injustice that we all feel acutely, but in different ways. Abhimanyu leaves his mortal remains and ascends the celestial path. He imparts the lesson that violence is useless in settling any dispute. There are no winners in a battle — the spoils of war being not riches — but senseless death and desolation. Production & Direction : Mrs. Shobha Deepak Singh

MEERA’s glory lay in her ability to articulate through poetry, the turbulence that transpired in her life. Her life seems to be a metaphor for most women, where centuries later, Meera’s name lives on. Wherever Meera went, she spread the message of liberation and urged an inner awakening, through the effervescence of her poetry. Production & Direction : Mrs. Shobha Deepak Singh

Wednesday, May 8th, 2019 :‘Odissi on High’
‘Odissi on High’ showcases the magic of Malaysia’s Ramli Ibrahim’s excellence as choreographer, dancer and costume designer, who translates the Odissi dance form into an intoxicating celebration with his troupe of artists, who carry the traditional Odissi dance form into a contemporary crescendo. Artistic Direction : Datuk Ramli Ibrahim and Guru Bichitrananda Swain
